You might think on a short-haul afternoon chug – one just a few hours long –  that everything would be rush and bustle and busying stresses; but even on so short a journey, somehow the alchemy of the Cut works its magic, and provides still moments when everything clicks into place; when peace settles across the boat; when the children are settled, contentedly busy; when the noise abates and the silence of the afternoon becomes tangible, forming a momentary ‘oasis of calm’.
